Clearly it's been a while!

Today is a good day to start cleaning the house up so we can decorate for Christmas! Yep, I said CHRISTMAS!! Who doesn't love this time of year? Rob is out deer hunting.... is it wrong of me to always hope he gets a deer right away so he doesn't have to keep going everyday??
The kids are in for a surprise when I tell them in 10 minutes that it is time for them to help me clean! Cause right now they are not playing very nicely!!! Maybe I should mention that Santa is watching them!!!!
Have a great day!

End of August

Can anyone else believe that the month is almost over?? The wedding came and went and here we are with just a few days until school starts! AAAAHHHH! Now that the school shopping is done, we can focus on getting all the stuff together and in the right backpacks! Can't believe I am going to have 2 kids in school this year! A kindergartner and 3 year old preschooler! Wow times sure goes fast.
Kids got new shoes today so of course they had to put them on and go for a little "run" in them. First they ran over to Aunt Cindy's to show her. Then we went around the block to wear a little nighttime energy off.
We have had a very busy couple of weeks so I don't know how those two keep going and going and going. Today we went to a couple of garage sales... Very interesting with two kids along, so much easier alone.
:-) But we made out ok, both got some "new" clothes as well as cousin Austin! It was fun shopping for him. Then we surprised Tanya at work with all the clothes we found for him. After that it was off the church to help mom with her church office disaster. We made a small dent in the area. Oh, it is nearly impossible to have two unorganized people trying to clean a space. LOL!! Now if I could only find the energy to clean the disaster I have at my house.
Of course some crappy news came my way today too. I found an email sent to me last night from the clinic telling me I wasn't getting the medical assistant position I had interviewed for a week and a half ago. It sure sucks to recieve news like that... Just waiting for God to tell me what and where I belong in life. I am trying to be patient but it is getting hard...
Friday night was a blast at Women's Night Out! Nothing like 9 adult women trying to hit open a pinata! What a blast. Lots of smiles and laughing during that. Of course Tanya was the first one to hit the floor running once it did split open! Good times, especially starting the night out with dinner at El Mexcal, yum yum. Same night Rob hit the road with the kids and Kristi and Jackson all the way to Phillips to watch a Pittsville football game. Sounds like it was a good time and of course the kids fell asleep on the way home, I think they finally got back shortly after 11:00.
Well, of to bed so this lady can get up for church tomorrow.

Pre Wedding Craziness!

The past few days of been quite busy! Wednesday night consisted of baking 7 pies, some brownies and some rice krispie bars!! Whew! That was fun! Then Thursday night I took the kids over to mom and dads and we basically watched Deb (matron of honor) do all the flowers for the wedding. She did a great job and all the other people there did a great job cheering her on!! LOL!
Friday morning started out early with Malorie and I meeting mom and Barb at church so we could get it decorated for the big day! We then left around 1130 to quickly run to get Racyn a shirt for the wedding (nothing like waiting until the last possible minute). Then we were in a rush to get to the Richfield Fire Dept since that is where the reception/dinner is and get that decorated. Thank goodness for all the help we had getting that done, it really looks nice and by the time we got done you knew there was going to be a wedding there! Then back to Marshfield for the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner!
 I know one thing for sure... I am going to cry at this wedding! I am so happy for Luke and Amanda! Finally, my big bro has found the person he was meant to be with and I think we all know that this is going to be a great marriage! I can't wait to be a part of it today! Oh, and happy birthday mom!!! We won't forget about you today either!
Now, just need to focus on getting everything ready for today! Can't believe I got over 10 hours of sleep last night! Boy did I need that.

Tuesday August 17, 2010

Had a crazy day! Had a second interview for a medical assistant job today, it went well but you never really know! After work I took the kids by myself to McDonalds and Malorie and Racyn had a blast playing. Then took some ice cream with us for the trip home (nice and messy)
We got home and started cleaning, yep, my favorite thing to do! After some much needed pushing to get the kids to help we reorganized the kids bookshelf and got part of the living room cleaned. Our living room stunk like dog! Yuck! Now after vaccuuming and Febreezing the place things are smelling a little better!!! Now we are sitting in peace and quiet watching DragonTales on our favorite channel, Sprout!
Just waiting for daddy to get home from helping the youth group at church with some landscaping projects!
